From the Archives (Sort Of): Back to Primary

After a little over a month in our new ward, here in Macomb, IL, I’ve received a calling. It is the exact same calling I had in our last ward, right down to taking care of the Weblos. And I’m delighted. First, because I know the routine. Second, because it’s nice to know where you’re supposed to be–and for a bishopric that’s known me for only a few weeks to pray and then ask me to serve in basically the same area I’ve served in for most of my church-going adult life…well, that just gives me a sense of confirmation about my niche.

I wrote about my return to Primary after a brief detour over a year ago; my feelings about Primary haven’t changed since then. So check out that post, and leave a comment there, if you’re so inclined. In meantime, wish me well–I’m free of elder’s quorum once more!

    Its funny because I seem to always be in a teaching position. Of the 18 months that I have spent at BYU-Idaho, I have taught for 14 of them, and now just today I received a call to teach in the Elder’s Quorum once again. I feel aswell that the Lord knows where I need to be and that the leaders in the ward are in tune with the spirit to place me where I’m supposed to be.

    I don’t think there is a more spiritual place than primary. I catch myself feeling the spirit more with primary songs than other things. I am a pretty well educated and not prone to blubbering, but some of the songs and those little voices just get to me. My husband is the primary pianist and has threatened to go inactive if he is ever released!–So, yea, I know what you mean.
